Hey, Colorado School Librarians and library leaders! I just received this really cool contest information from AASL. This looks like an easy way to win $500 for you library (and one of your students to win a flipcam for him or herself. And, if you DO pursue this, let me know. Here at the Colorado State library, we are on the lookout for very short, student-led video clips about how effective library programs help students. Call or e-mail me at 303.866.6772; email@example.com). Read on!!
How do you empower your students to Think, Create, Share, Grow?
The American Association of School Librarians, along with SchoolTube, Cisco and Mackin, are teaming up to offer students a chance to win a Flip™ video camera and $500 for the school library program of their choice. All they have to do is submit a video showing how their school librarian helps them use technology to learn.
Students’ videos should visually illustrate how the four standards of student learning – Think, Create, Share, Grow – as defined by AASL’s Standards for the 21st-Century Learner, empower them to be a Learner4Life.
• Think – How your students use technology to access information and pursue inquiry.
• Create – How your students use technology in their schoolwork to create projects that express new understandings.
• Share – How your students use technology to organize and display knowledge that others can use; participate and collaborate with others.
• Grow – How your students usetechnology to seek information for personal learning.
